I'm alive - I guess that's good! Sorry for the days between posts - when summer school starts I forget that the only way I have time to blog is if I do it while the coffee is brewing. Let's sum up with a quick run through of the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
Good: Today is Thursday. That means tomorrow is Friday.
Bad: Today is only Thursday.
Ugly: After Friday I still have three more weeks of summer school.
Good: Fanny won the contest! My K is for Kent!
Bad: I have no good pictures of him, and frankly, no desire to take any.
Ugly: I still haven't mailed Fanny her package. Maybe tomorrow?
Good: I got yarn in the mail on Monday!
Bad: I have no picture of it.
Ugly: And no time to knit it.
Good: We're going to Colorado for a week after summer school!
Bad: We're leaving right after I finish tearing down on the last day - at 7 or 8 pm.
Ugly: When we get back I'll only have 3 weeks until teachers report back. Where does the summer go?
Good: I'm teaching a kiddo knitting class this summer for my new LYS.
Bad: I don't have the sample done yet.
Ugly: I really don't like the yarn I'm using for it (Lamb's Pride) as it sheds all over me and is a bit too scratchy for my taste.
Good: Hubbo and I bought Tennis racquets on Sunday so we can get some exercise and spend time together.
Bad: My arm is sore.
Ugly: After he drug me out of bed at 6 am yesterday to play, when I walked in the door from working ten hours (and commuting 45 minutes each way) last night, his first words weren't "Hi honey," they were "wanna go play?"
Good: I'm loving the Leaf Lace Shawl.
Bad: I haven't touched it since Sunday.
Ugly: I think at that rate it's going to take me five lifetimes to finish.
I think that sums up the goings-on around here. I'll try to take some pictures for next time. Finally, let me ask you a qustion IN the spirit of needing something easy to knit that wasn't a sock, I *may* have cast on for a new project. Did I cast on for Kyoto, NBAT, or Picovoli?
